Result is basically two things in one. First of all,
it could be considered a "best of" because
all of the tracks on it were voted on by fans. Also,
it is essentially the band's live record, drawing all
of its songs from radio shows and concert tapings. The
album presents the band in their natural environment
- on stage, where they were truly comfortable and able
to display their vision, as opposed to being confined
to a studio. Through this, the listener really gets
a feel for the band's spontaneity and live presentation.
At points there are screw ups like on "If Reagan
Played Disco," at others it all comes together
like on the incredible version of "This Ain't No
Picnic". Even though D. Boon's life was tragically
cut short, Ballot Result is a fitting end to his truly
great band - a band that thrived on live performance.
